I was wondering if anyone here has knit anything with Fleece Artist's Handmaiden Lace Silk or Sea Silk. (Handmaiden
is a spin-off of FA).
I've read that Sea Silk is incredible but it's really hard to find because the demand is high. The color i want is on super backorder everywhere.
So my next option is their Lace Silk instead.
What i want to make is This beaded scarf
but as an accessory, not for warmth. I was thinking of making it a little narrower and use smaller needles. I've never knit with 100% silk before so i'm not too sure how well it drapes, but i've seen people describe 100% silk as being "crunchy"
and that the Sea Silk isn't as "crunchy" with a nice drape.
So, i'm concerned that if i go with the 100% Lace Silk it will be kinda stiff. Has anyone here used it or this Sea Silk stuff?
Oh! PS. i should add that i can't use any animal fibers for this project as it's for my aunt and she's allergic to things and rather fussy about "itchyness"
